Riyad Mahrez's penalty miss for Manchester City against Liverpool

Fans of Liverpool react as the Manchester City team bus arrives prior to the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final first leg match between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield

Klopp and his City counterpart Pep Guardiola were satisfied with their team's displays in a tight, tactical encounter which finished 0-0 at Anfield, but the German was clearly frustrated to now lose his players for global duty.

Behind them, Virgil van Dijk was majestic until the moment he conceded an 85th-minute penalty - missed by Riyad Mahrez - following a foul on Leroy Sane.

But it could have been far better for Pep Guardiola and co but £60m summer signing Riyad Mahrez blazed a late penalty way over the bar.

As for what it means for the standings, there is now a three-way tie for first with teams having records of 6-2-0.

Manchester City are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and are yet to lose a game in the league this season. Instead, he skied it and cost his team a historic win at Anfield. We used the ball better.

'We have to start thinking about the players. All of Liverpool's starting front six had been involved in both the defeat away to Napoli on Wednesday and the draw at Chelsea last Saturday, and it may be they were suffering a touch of fatigue after three such tough games in a week.

The Etihad giants could have had two earlier penalties before Mahrez's miss while the Algerian also dragged a good chance just wide.

"We feel we can compete with any team but people seem to be just dismissing other teams and making it a two-horse race, which is not the case", the Scotland worldwide told Sky Sports. "How we played was different to previous seasons".

City, meanwhile, adjusted shape, the usual 4-3-3 becoming 4-4-2 with David Silva operating as a second striker behind Sergio Aguero.

"When I was up there in the commentary box, I could see the goalkeeper coach, you can see what he's telling him", the Liverpool legend said on Sky Sports.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes said he believed they paid Chelsea "too much respect" and pointed to a first-half miss by Danny Ings, who blasted over from a couple of meters, as a game-changer.

"Not struggling in the sense of playing badly but I felt as though Liverpool just had the edge on them when I was watching".

Liverpool fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Jordan Henderson against Manchester City. I thought how we defended was brilliant.

"I would not like to speak about the referees, about the decisions", Guardiola said.

"We had our chances as well; it's not as if it was their game for the taking".
